The essay will then move on to consider different arguments and opinions on the matter to draw a sound conclusion in order to answer the question.

The Cost of Personal Freedom

- The most dangerous enemy to truth and freedom amongst us is the compact majority Inscribed on the front of every American coin is a Latin phrase: E Pluribus Unum. It means: From many, one, and it has come to represent the unity of America. Unity is an idyllic image; cheerful people, living together, sharing resources and ideas. Another trait associated with America is diversity, a concept which, it seems, should threaten unity. America has remained peaceful when compared with many other nations, perhaps due to the fact that most lifestyles are acceptable, but it does mean that America has more trouble acting cohesively than many nations....   [tags: English Literature]

John Locke on Personal Identity

Personal Identity : What Makes Up The Person That You Are?

- Your personal identity is what makes up the person that you are from one day to the next. Many philosophers question what personal identity truly is. Some philosophers agree that personal identity has great rational and a moral significance. Today, I will be talking about the philosopher that says the exact opposite of that: Derek Parfit. First, Parfit believes that at some future time, I shall either exist or I shall not exist. His second belief is that there some matters that are important to us that involve survival, responsibility, and memory, which we cannot decide unless the question of personal identity is answered....   [tags: Psychology, Mind, Thought, Cognition]
